Why choose Faces Makeup and Hair?

Experienced stylists

Each of our senior stylists has a minimum of 8 years of experience in the makeup and hairstyling industry.  In particular, we are very popular for wedding bookings.  We typically have wedding bookings every weekend.  During peak wedding seasons (March to May, September to November) we could be booked for up to 7 appointments on a single weekend.  Our stylists know everything that you need to know on how you can look and feel your best on your special day.

Premium products

Different stylists have different preference as to the products they use.  This is particularly true to our team because of the versatile background of our stylists.  In line with our premium image, it is our policy not to endorse any supermarket brands.  In addition, we never use any products that are of unknown origin.

Products used by our team include Gorgeous Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, NARS, Stila, Shu Uemura, Clinique, MAC, Urban Decay, Too Faced and more. We are proud to be an authorised stockist of Gorgeous Cosmetics - a preimium Australian cosmetics brand developed by the Academy of Makeup for professional makeup artists.

Hygiene

Our principal stylist Stella has a doctorate in biological sciences and so we all follow a stringent hygienic regime.  We use disposable products (such as mascara wands and sponges) whenever possible.  We never use our brushes on our clients without first sanitising them.

Friendly and helpful serivce

We understand how important your special day is to you, so we listen and do our best to make you look and feel beautiful and confident.  We are not only skilled but also punctual and more importantly, very cheerful! 

Our services do not stop at makeup and hair.  We do everything we can to assist you.  In the past, we have helped our clients with finding wedding dresses, photographers and videographers in the last minutes. We have even helped our clients to map out a reception run sheet.  Think of us as your walking encyclopedia.

Trials

What is a trial? Must I book a trial?

A trial is a 3-hour session (1.5 hours makeup, 1.5 hours hairstyling) for you to get to know us, and for us to understand exactly what you have in mind.  We also provide you with professional advice of the styles that would suit you most.  It is more than just makeup and hair - we are keen to discuss with you about your skin, sun protection, colour theme, and help you to plan the schedule for your special day. Trial is not mandatory but is highly recommend to make sure we can bring out the best in you.

Tossing up between whether to do one or not? See our blog post here.

How many styles can I try in one trial session?

We will fit in as many as we can do in the 3-hour session.  Typically we can do 2 makeup styles and 2 hair styles in 3 hours.

What do I wear to a trial?

Comfortable outfit with a similar colour to your special day outfit.  This will enable us to see how the tone and intensity of your makeup interact with the colour of your dress.

What else do I need to prepare for the trial?

efore a makeup trial, avoid wearing makeup or sunscreen.  If you plan to wear contact lenses on your special day, wear them to the trial as well.  One-day old hair is usually best for hair styling.  Wash and dry your hair on the night prior.  It is a good idea to bring your inspiration pictures.  If you have any hair accessories (such as a veil) that you are planning to use, please bring them to the trial to find out whether they would work with the hairstyle you want.

Can I bring a friend?

You are welcome to bring one friend or a family member with you. We advise against bringing too many people, or bringing a very opinionated friend because we may run the risk of creating a makeup and hairstyle that your friend likes, and not what you would like.

Can I do photoshoot with my photographer after the trial?

In a trial we aim to provide you with different styles to choose from, meaning that we will be changing your makeup and hairstyle a few times.  By the end of the trial session the result will not be of perfect photographic quality.  You should book a separate makeup and hairstyling session for your photoshoot.

 

Booking Procedures

How do I secure booking for my special day?

The Faces Makeup and Hair Team provides superior quality services and as such we are in high demand all year round.  Bookings can only be secured by paying a non-refundable deposit.  Please note that filling in an enquiry form, asking for a quotation or booking for a trial does not guarantee the date will be vacated for you.

The deposit required is 50% of your entire booking.  Once this deposit is received we will reject other jobs that conflict with your booking.  Therefore your deposit cannot be refunded under any circumstances.

I have done a trial.  When do I need to confirm my special day booking?

We encourage you to look at your makeup outdoor, indoor and in different lightings.  We do not pressure you into paying a deposit right after the trial.  However, bear in mind that after the trial we are not obliged to vacate the special day for you unless we have received a deposit.

How much time in advance do I need to make a booking?

Typically we receive enquiries 9-12 months in advance.  However, in many cases we are able to look after clients with a much shorter notice.  Working as a team means we have more capacity than other sole-trading businesses.

When is the balance due?

The balance is due 28 days prior to service.  Once paid, the balance is strictly non-refundable.

Can I add my mother-in-law to the list after I made a booking?

If you need extra services please let us know as soon as possible.  We will try our best to look after your needs as long as we have capacity.  An additional deposit will be required.

My mother changed her mind.  She does not want to have her hair done anymore.  Can I take her off the list?

You may not reduce the number of booked services once you have made your balance payment or less than 28 days prior to the special day, whichever is earlier.

Otherwise you may reduce the number of makeup application or hairstyling you have booked, subject to payment of a cancellation fee (See our booking terms and conditions at the bottom of the page).

Can I change the time or location of my booking?

We will try our best to accommodate your changes as long as they do not impact on our other commitments on the same day.

 

Pricing

Are there any discounts or packages for large group booking?

The Faces Makeup and Hair team is highly sought after for wedding bookings.  Our standard prices are published and can be downloaded here.  We offer extremely competitive pricing for the quality of service we provide.  As such we do not provide further discount off our published prices.

We offer student rates for school formals (Monday to Friday only).  Please visit here for further information.

Do the hairstyling prices include hair accessories?

We do not include hair accessories in our hairstyling prices.  For hygienic reasons we do not provide hair accessories, but we will be able to place or incorporate your accessories into the updo.

Faces Hair and Make up were amazing! Hannah was my attendant and she was fantastic. She was open to suggestions, has a lovely personality and was such a pleasure to have doing my hair and make up! I got compliments all day and night :)

7 Jan 2018

Stella is amazing, understanding my requests and made recommendation that suits me. Feel amazing and confident with her make up and hair styling. Cost is for make up and hair styling of me, 2 Mums and 1 bridesmaid. Highly recommended.

5 Nov 2017

I really loved my looked on the day and also my two bridesmaid. Her co worker Holly did a great job also. The makeup lasted the whole day without touching up!

3 Aug 2018

Holly was really fantastic, friendly and really easy to work with. My makeup lasted well into the night also from an 11am start.

6 Apr 2018

Easy to work with, and great result on the day.

28 Dec 2017

Very friendly. In terms of make up, nice and delicate touch.

27 Oct 2017

Really good and professional make-up artists! I love how the make-up was very simple and not over the top. My bridesmaids and I loved it!

20 Oct 2017

Hair and makeup for me and the bridal party and my family at a very reasonable rate. Great service and Hannah really knows her stuff!

9 Jun 2017

Holly and rose were amazing they took the ideas and photos I showed and did it even better. The girls and I looked gorgeous I highly recommend these guys as they're priced cheaper than a lot of places but still deliver amazing results!

19 May 2017

Hannah was a talented and patient make-up and hair artist to have on board. Thank you so much Hannah for your help on the day to make me look my best, as well as during the trials. All of my bridal crew were very happy with the results.

10 Feb 2017

Stylist Jinny, whi was doing my make up and hair, was super professional and sweet: she created a wonderful style for me which endured the +46 degrees and met my tricky requirements - I wanted to look more natural than what the typical bridal make up would be. She was very flexible in styling and also even helped my bridesmaid with putting on my wedding gown. She was very friendly! I would also recommend every bride to go for a trial make up, especially if you dont use a lot in every day life, then you will know better yourself what suits you and what you need. I think it was one of the best decisions I madez whilw preparing for the wedding - to go for a trial make up.

28 Oct 2016

Stella (lead makeup artist) did a stunning job with my makeup and hair on the day. She was easy to communicate with. For the trial, she did a great job getting everything the way I wanted it. On the day, she was punctual and efficient and did a beautiful job.

15 Oct 2016

They were sensational in everything they did. Nothing moved and stayed all day. They were pressed for time and achieved everything. I threw curve balls at them and they adapted. They were the best priced as well.

1 Oct 2016

Jenny the makeup artist was great. Really happy with the result. However, the booking process was a nightmare as the booking manager only replies once a day on email.

23 Jul 2016

Hannah was an absolute star. I found them online and did not had the chance for a make up trial since i was overseas. She did the most amazing job for me and my mum. I'm so glad we found her !
